Football theonlycolors.com —  The offense was both explosive and efficient, where it was merely explosive against Nebraska. Connor Cook still has work to do, though; he still is somewhat inconsistent and it shows in his completion percentage (a mere 19/37, or 51%). This is especially confusing because there have been just 3 sacks given up by the offensive line all year, and all of them came against Oregon. The running game certainly helped, as Jeremy Langford, Nick Hill and Delton Williams all averaged at least 8 yards per carry.
